You are currently viewing Formula 1: Mick Schumacher laughs up his sleeve – Hülkenberg’s debut is a complete flop

Mick Schumacher out, Nico Hülkeberg in – with this decision, Haas caused heated discussions in Formula 1. Many consider the exchange to be wrong. Above all, of course, Mick himself.

During Hülkenberg’s first laps in the Haas, the chased pilot should not have been able to suppress a grin. The debut of his successor in tire testing shortly after the Formula 1 finale went pretty badly.

Formula 1: Hülkenberg’s Haas debut fails

Less than 48 hours after the season finale, the Formula 1 cars were doing their laps again. The traditional tire tests took place in Abu Dhabi. The racing teams are allowed to put up the next season’s Pirellis for the first time and test drive them.

For Nico Hülkenberg it was also the first laps in the new car. The German takes over the cockpit of his compatriot Mick Schumacher – an explosive decision for which the team bosses did not only receive praise.

Hulkenberg is also struggling with the Haas

“Schumi junior” in particular should have looked very closely at how his successor was doing in the Formula 1 tire tests. After all, it’s the only time Hulkenberg has been on track in Mick’s 2022 Haas. He might have caught himself with a little glee.

Hulkenberg’s debut went wrong. Not because the veteran couldn’t cope in the new car. But because the Haas gave up the ghost. The “Hulk” had been driving for an hour when it rolled out. Instead of familiarizing himself with the car, he was then stuck in the garage for more than two hours, where the technical problem had to be fixed.

Did Mick Schumacher feel a touch of satisfaction? After all, last season he was also accused of being too impatient and overzealous and having repeatedly provoked damage to his Haas. However, Hulkenberg seems to have the same problems in the same car.
